I have a PC with 2(two) operating systems: Windows 10 and Arch Linux.
When I boot to widows 10 casting from Brave browser works to my TV and SkyQ box(satelite)
When I boot to Arch Linux Brave states “Source not supported”
I want to remove Windows 10 but this is one of the issues I face that is stopping me from removing Windows 10, The reason I want to remove Windows 10 is because I want to move away from it.
Why Does Brave state the 2 devices are “Source not supported” when clearly they ARE.
I have searched this community and ensure all the settings are present and correct, I have reinstalled the browser multiple times to no effect, Clearly there is an issue but nothing is providing any logs or clues as to what is the cause.
If it was a network issue then it would not work in windows.
So this points to an issue with the OS rather than specifically with Brave. I would imagine that if you try the same action using Chrome or some other Chromium browser, you’d get the same results. If your OS is unable to detect any source devices to cast to, nor will your (that is, any) browser.
Digging a little further, it seems that lots of users have had this issue with Arch Linux and casting to external devices. There are some things we can test though. However, you should try and get a local file to cast first – that way we can be sure that you’re able to cast from the OS, period. Try the following:
Unless you already have it installed, download and install VLC Media player (free and open-source).
Once installed, play a media file in VLC or add one to the playlist.
Then, go to Playback --> Renderer and see if your devices appear on this list (note that it may take a few seconds for devices to appear in this list from time to time).
Cheers for the suggestions.
I’ve tried chromium and google-chrome neither can cast
I think I’ll just have to accept the fact that my system can’t use chromecast, I’m lost and just fed up. I really thought the browser would do this but I can’t even get vlc to cast.
I’ll be buggered if I’m going to re-install just to get this so I’ll just say goodbye and thanks for all the fish!
